    Antidote to Egoism


    The only antidote to egoism is accepting God’s Will. In Sikhism, we consider ego the worst enemy, because, it is the biggest hurdle on the path of Self Realization. It is that Rog that has to be checked all the way along.

    Submitting to God’s will is the only solution to this. It can also be stated as living under His Bliss or living under His Command.


    Guru Ji teaches us over and over again: God is in control of all the things. He is the Creator and the Destroyer. He is the Liberator and the Sustainer. He is in us and He is everywhere. He is the Karta Purkh. All the parts of the Universe are under His control, nothing can happen in the universe out side His Hukam. …


    So whatever Kartapurkh does must be acceptable to us (that too iKVy m`Qy). We must welcome everyday/hour/minute as it comes. We must put anger, sadness, jealousy, regret, revenge, greed and all this koor behind and surrender before His Will. All this can easily happen when we do Naam Simran.



    Naam Simran keeps us in Chardi Kala, by charging us with unlimited spiritual strength and by providing us the courage to accept His Will. It instigates the willingness to overlook other's weaknesses or mistakes. Naam Simran removes the concept of duality from our minds completely. It helps us develop self-control. And we are able to merge our will into His. Aspirant’s submission to His Will produces a sense of humility and self-abnegation. This attribute converts the old thinking process that was full of I-ness.
    The aspirant regards himself as an instrument of Divine Will. Living in harmony with the Divine Will brings everlasting peace. Eventually the state of Sahej (cosmic equilibrium) is achieved. No ‘I’ remains anymore; it is all Him and only Him.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
